Notes
May work on TNG 11 since that is when the fan chart was added. The mod has not been tested on any TNG 11 version though.



Purpose of the mod

It fixes several issues with the Fan Chart. They are:
Fix the fan chart to not get an extra generation that is not displayed, which will save on some resources.
Fix making the names fit in the chart boxes correctly.
Fix the double adding of slashes to the bio.
Fix the HTML entities saved in the database being displayed as HTML entities.
Fix the bio box size being calculated incorrectly and being too small.
Fix the bio falling off the canvas as best as possible, since at small generations the fan canvas is narrower than the bio box.
Fix some HTML validation as well.

Developer

The Fan Chart Fix mod was developed by Brent Hemphill
